The River Grove Metra commuter rail station. River Grove Illinois. November 2007.

One location I occasionally enjoy spending time railfanning with a camera in My hand, is the Metra River Grove commuter rail station, located just west of Elmwood Park Illinois.
This depot is located on the west side of Thatcher Avenue / Illinois U.S Route# 171 just north of Grand Avenue in north suburban River Grove Illinois.
It can be a very busy location with Canadian Pacific freight trains, Metra commuter trains, and in possibly a few years from now...The proposed "New" Amtrak Blackhawk from Chicago Illinois to Du Buque Iowa. ( It is currently in the planning stages.)
